Top Ten Tuesday #13

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. It was created because of a particular fondness towards lists. Each week, a new top ten question will be posted on the hosting blog for other blogs to join in with on their own blogs. All you need to do to join in is link back to the host somewhere on your post, and add your link to the linky list via the host.

I apologise for the lack of Top Ten Tuesday recently - it just takes a fair amount of time to do, and it's time that I don't have very much of at the moment. I've tried my best to do this week's post to the best of my ability, but in the time I have though.
Fingers crossed I'll have some more time on my hands soon and I won't have to miss another one!

This week's post is:

Top Ten Covers of 2012 that we know of so far...

Everneath by Brodi Ashton: I actually already had an advance eBook copy of this book from NetGalley, but when I saw the actual cover for it, I knew I had to have it! It looks so beautiful on my shelves!

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin: Technically I'm allowed this one, as the paperback only came out a couple of days ago. I really loved this book, and I definitely think the cover reflects the atmosphere of the book. I saw some more photos from the cover artist the other day as well, and the rest of the photos in the series that this belongs to, are gorgeous!

Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver: I much prefer this cover to the one for Delirium (obviously these are the British covers). It's such a beautiful colour, and it feels very summery, which is always positive. I also like the wide, open space that it shows. I think it'll suit the book really well. I'll be reading this one next, so I'm very excited!

Fever by Lauren DeStefano: This one is in the same style as the first in the series, Wither, and they are definitely beautiful covers. I love the circles and lines that decorate the main image. They're definitely unique and noticeable covers.

Incarnate by Jodi Meadows: This was the first book I read in 2012, but unfortunately, I was reading it on my Kindle, so I didn't get to see the beautiful cover every time I went to read it. Obviously, having written my review, and updated status' on goodreads though, I've seen it plenty of times, and I love it. It really suits the protagonist - if you read it, you'll find out why!

A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink: This cover is really beautiful, and I can't wait for it to be released in a couple of weeks, so I'll get my hardback!

Fracture by Megan Miranda: I'm upset that my review copy of this one doesn't have the full cover on it. I think it's a really atmospheric cover that really suits the book. I can't wait to get my teeth into my copy.

Unravelling by Elizabeth Norris: Thankfully, my review copy of this does have the full cover on it, and I really love it! In fact, I love the design throughout the entire book. The chapters begin with the same countdown that you can see on the front cover, which I think is a really great idea! Keep an eye out for my review of this one, sometime before its release in June.

Cinder by Marissa Meyer: I really loved this book, and I couldn't help but fall in love with the cover as I was reading. On the British covers at least, the shoe sticks out from the page slightly, so you can feel it when you're reading. Plus, it has a real fairy tale feeling to it. It's gorgeous, and it really suits the book!

Timeless by Gail Carriger: I love the covers for this entire series. I think what's most attractive about them, is the costumes that are worn on each cover. They're so elegant and beautiful. They give the novel a character before you even turn the first page!

What do you think of the covers I've chosen this week? Are there any more that you'd add to the list? Let me know in the comments below :)

Lovely choices, I've got the Unbecoming of Mara Dyer in common with you, and almost added that cover for Pandemonium. Not easy to narrow the covers down to ten. Everneath and Incarnate are also fab.

Great choices Dani. I love Everneath, Fever and Unraveling. ~ Donna

I hate to sound snobby, but I steer clear of books with these types of covers. I like the type on ONE MORE RIVER by Glickman or on the latest book by Stef Penney. They aren't gorgeous just my type.

Pen to Paper said...

@techeditor: I do like a bit of Stef Penney, although I haven't read my copy of The Invisible Ones yet - it's waiting patiently to be read. I think it's on my TBR challenge for the year... possibly.
The Tenderness of Wolves is wonderful though!

Dani :)
